Going, Going, Gone, 2016
The series entitled ‘Going, Going, Gone’ metaphorically gives reference to the social housing crisis in London, and the homes of many residents that are increasingly under threat of demolition due to the impending introduction of the Housing Bill. The work aims to draw attention to these overlooked buildings and present them as objects of beauty. These buildings remain iconic references to British architecture and exist as the last of their kind, inescapably losing their way to the private real estate market and affordable housing. Light is manipulated by systematically adjusting shutter speed and aperture to represent a timeline of the subject’s imminent fate. The photos are organized like windows of a typical social housing block, reinforcing the importance of the individuals that live inside them.
